Sesame Place in Langhorne is reopening July 24 after months of being closed. But like many amusement parks, there are new policies in place due to coronavirus.

In order to enter the park, guests must reserve tickets online in advance. This will help to enable social distancing. Tickets are available on the main website here.

Additionally, guests without face covering will be turned away. If someone forgets a mask at home, there is an option to purchase one at the park.

This includes people with disabilities and anyone who simply refuses to wear a mask. It applies to all guests 2 years of age and older.

There are some exceptions to the face covering rule once guests are inside the park. People who are in designated relaxation areas or eating and drinking can take off their masks. Face coverings are not allowed in the water, including attractions like water slides or pools.

The park is also informing guests new procedures will likely mean longer lines to get into Sesame Place. People should “allow for more time when planning your visit.”

Despite these guidelines and new policies, there is no foolproof way to prevent someone from spreading the coronavirus. A banner at the top of the Sesame Place website serves as a warning to potential guests.

“Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.”
